Comments[edit source]

This looks like a great chapter, I love coffee and can't wait to see the finished product. I went through and edited the use of your in text citations. In APA 6, with three or more authors you place a comma before the use of the ampersand or "and"; for e.g. "Neil, Grant, and Crisp (2015) found that..." and (Neil, Grant, & Crisp, 2015). This type of citation guideline can be found on the bottom of page 132 of the "Interactive Approach to Writing Essays & Research Reports in Psychology" by Burton. Good luck with it!

Hello, I love your chapter and Coffee! This might seem far fetched but could you consider social influences or pressures for drinking coffee? As part of the take home message section? Ccgmjb (discusscontribs) 05:44, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello just had another look at your chapter and it is developing greatly! :) Just checking with your grey tables should they be labeled table 1 and 2? As per APA 6? Also the key questions look great and focus your reader on what is expected in this chapter :) You also clearly describe the context and problem that needs answering in the introduction. Could a further section on the applied value of this knowledge be added? or a key take home message to wrap up this informative page? Ccgmjb (discusscontribs) 23:34, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello :) im just letting you know that i was looking at your page and i noticed that your picture of the coffee had the caption - caffeine is one of the most popular ways to consume caffeine. i just changed that to coffee is one of the most.... :) i thought that made more sense . Good luck with your chapter (3083783ro (discusscontribs) 02:09, 23 October 2015 (UTC)=u3083783)

Hi! I look forward to reading the final product of your page! It has always interested me the effect caffeine has on an individual, especially someone with anxiety. Just a thought, you could potentially discuss the different types of anxiety, say GAD and social anxiety, and if there is a significant difference in the effect it has depending on the disorder. Good luck :) (becc_z (discusscontribs)

Resources[edit source]

Hi there! Your page is looking really good, heaps of interesting information! Some graphs or even a quiz could be beneficial, I looked up some statistics that you could possibly use, there really was not much that I could found, but this website has a couple of graphs and some statistics that could be helpful: Caffeine Evaluation

Here is a link on the Australian food standards that has heaps of information on caffeine and the link to anxiety, just incase you needed more information. THE SAFETY ASPECTS OF DIETARY CAFFEINE

Good Luck :) --U3098499 (discusscontribs) 00:01, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==
